CELTIC kid Barry Hepburn is on Bayern Munich’s wanted list.

The 16-year-old winger could follow his former Hoops team-mate Liam Morrison to the Bundesliga giants.

Hepburn still has a year to run on his youth registration contract, but Bayern are confident of completing a deal in the summer, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

The Parkhead club have seen the Scotland Under-17 ace knock back an offer of a first professional contract and it looks as though he will be heading for the exit.

Last summer, the champions lost promising central defender Morrison to the German outfit.

He has spent the season playing for the club’s Under-17s side, who are managed by former German international Miroslav Klose. The 17-year-old Saltcoats-born, who agreed a three-year deal when he quit the Hoops, scored two goals in 14 appearances and is highly rated by the Munich gaffers.

Hepburn could join him within the next three months.
